Niche is so easy to use. All the scholarships are laid out nicely and are very organized. I like how you can search a specific college and find scholarships that apply to them. I wish the scholarships that I apply for on Niche would move to a different place so I would know which ones I already applied for and which ones I haven't.

My overall experience at North Buncombe High School has been very positive. The availability of courses, including AP courses, is diverse. Additionally, there are abundant opportunities to become involved in extracurricular activities such as clubs, performing arts, athletics, student government, and the like. The school staff is welcoming and encourages one-to-one tutoring before and after school to facilitate better learning.

My favorite experiences were in band class, there's no other place where a person feels better about themselves, more confident, or more accepted. I would choose this school again because of the few great teachers I had, but only if I could do color guard all over again all four years.
